Congratulations to Sue Petty

We’d like to congratulate Sue Petty, the Sidcup Partners BID Chair following her success in receiving a special award from the Mayor of Bexley recognising the support she has given to our local community during the Covid-19 crisis and which she continues to provide to this day.

Sue is thrilled with the award and with the overwhelming feedback she has gained as a result.

“I’m so pleased to be recognised in this way but I’ve also been very touched that people have taken the time to write to congratulate me.  I’ve had 136 comments on Facebook alone – the award means a lot, for that reason alone.

During the lockdown period, in particular, I delivered fruit and vegetables, eggs and bread to elderly people who were unable to get out and I also visited local shops to see if they needed any help.

I made ‘packs ups’ for nurses, which included some treats, as a  “thank you” for the work they were doing and even organised a teddy bear’s picnic for a local school, for the children of key workers.

I think that I’m very fortunate to have a loving family and, whilst I struggled earlier on in my life, I am ‘comfortable’ now and think it’s nice to give something back to the community in which I live and work. The fact is that it doesn’t always have to be about money, time is just as important and I’m just glad I’ve been able to use mine so effectively and that’s it been valued by those I’ve been so determined to help.”
